Conan O'Brien just couldn't wait to update his iPhone to iOS7, so he decided to take care of it live on air.
What he didn't realize, however, was that doing so might lead to a power outage, a flock of demonic birds and maybe even a cow falling from the ceiling. But hey, new software!

Just when we thought Bluetooth headsets make their wearers look like insufferable douchebags, then insufferable douchebags had to go and outdo themselves with this thing. (via <a href="http://www.cio.com/special/slideshows/silly_smartphone_accessories/slide05#slideshow" target="_hplink">Cio</a>)
At first glance, we see two things problematic about the Cell Mate. The first is that apparently nobody at Cell Mate Headquarters knows about hands-free headsets that come with most cell phones. The second is that it might not be the best strategy to name your product after prisoners. (via <a href="http://www.likecool.com/Cell_Mate--Cellphone--Gear.html" target="_hplink">Like Cool</a>)

This phone wrist accessory looks like it was specifically engineered to piss off Baby Boomers who think younger folks are too attached to their phones. (via <a href="http://www.gizmodiva.com/mobile_phones/wrist_cell_phone_carrier_keeps_your_phone_safe.php" target="_hplink">Gizmodiva</a>)
The infamous TV Hat is a device that magnifies an iPhone's screen so you can watch downloaded TV and movies on the go. It was apparently invented by Steve Martin's character in "The Jerk."

Banana Cell Phone Holder
This one is great because it's impractical <i>and</i> will make its users look like a lunatic. One day using this would be a fun novelty. Two days would turn you into a character from "Juno."

Cell Phone Holster
Kill two birds with one stone: carry around your cell phone conveniently, and fulfill your childhood dream of becoming a big strong policeman! Except that you'll probably get killed in the line of duty the first time you reach for your phone in a public place. Also goes perfect with the cell phone revolver!
